    A dining-cultural experience! Llama takes Peruvian food to a creative high level. Each dish seems like a personal work of art with a myriad of flavors blended together. Service is”precious” with a staff close at hand for any needs. Nice interesting wines by the glass as well and some unique non-alcoholic Selections.

    Great little restaurant specializing in Peruvian cuisine and excelling at it! It's hard to find this quality of cuisine even in big cities but to have such a find in St Augustine represents a real find for locals and visitors alike. We have eaten here probably 10 times through its existence and it NEVER disappoints whether its there meat, fish, or shellfish or the numerous vegetarian selections, we've never had a single dish (and we've tried them all) that would rate at less than 4 out of five stars and most are a strong 5/5. Most diners in northeast Florida shy away from ethnic restaurants, especially those serving fine dining, but Llama has been packed with diners since it opened so get your reservations early! Just can't say enough good about this restaurant!

    Love this little place. Very tiny, hard to get a reservation and you will sit close to neighboring tables on hard chairs BUT it is so cute and the staff is always “cheery”. Obviously, most important is the food…wonderful. We always get the pulpo and ceviche and rack of lamb but this time tried the grouper. Everything is amazing and the presentation perfect’

    Very tasty, fresh, and authentic Peruvian food. Great ambience, quiet, and cozy. Presentation of the dishes was amazing and the food was incredible. Definitely worth it. Just one note for those with kids...there isn't a kids menu but we brought an 8 y.o. and 14 y.o who both had the mushrooms and pasta dish which was delicious.

    We had a really wonderful experience with our server Ashley - very warm, considerate, and attentive to details such as dietary restrictions on Open Table profile. The meals we amazingly presented and flavorful. Hangar steak was so tender and to die for. The grouper wrapped in banana leaves was creative, very moist and went very well with accompanying sides. Highly recommend and can’t wait to return!

    What a delight! When we arrived, I immediately understood why it's so hard to get a reservation: the place is very intimate (tiny). Ambiance is Peruvian farmhouse. Service was good. The food preparation and flavor is five star, but at three or four star prices. The mocktail and cocktail menu had some items that were fun, different, and delicious. This meal is in "best ever" category, and we can't wait to go back. This time we'll know to book far in advance.

The menu is packed full of options for vegetarians and omnivores and the presentation is truly fine dining feel without being pretentious. I highly recommend a visit but be sure to make reservations well ahead because the dining rooom is smaller than mainstream. Cheers!

    A gem of a restaurant offering expertly prepared Peruvian cuisine and a well thought out wine list. The staff are professionals who are both attentive and friendly. Must try their ceviche, pulpo, and lamb chops! Next time, we will opt for the vegetarian options on the last page of the menu.

From the opening salvo of cocktails, appetizers and a wonderful selection of wines, to the unique entrees and desserts they offer, this is the perfect place for those who enjoy a remarkable culinary venture. My wife and I have dined there as recently as last night and I will cordially finish with an enthusiastic “Bon appetit”!

    My husband and I loved Peruvian food and were very excited to try this restaurant. However, we found a lack of very important dishes that are a must in a Peruvian Restaurant such a variety of ceviche (they just offer one), chaufa rice (they just have seafood rice), huancaina sauce, or even a variety of causa (they just have one). We understand that their menu is kind of inspired in some Peruvian dishes but it is not definitely a restaurant that represents Peruvian cuisine. We ordered the only cause they had and it was ok, and the Mar y Tierra dish that was ok as well. Overall the food is ok. At the end, we ordered a dessert that was really our main disappointment, I will never ever understand how come a small alfajor with a tiny scoop of ice cream, could be priced for 21 usd. Not even in a top class Michelin restaurants I have paid that price for a dessert, and if it had been worthy I would pay without any complains, but that dessert is NOT worth such a high price. In the other hand, SERVICE is outstanding, the servers are incredibly kind. So overall, it was good, service matters for me a lot, but the value for the money is their weakness/
